Marcel-Louis Baugniet (Belgian, 1896-1995)
An original pencil, crayon and gouache painting of Constructivist style by Belgian artist and designer Marcel-Louis Baugniet. One of the most diverse and significant Belgian avant-garde artists of the early 20th century, Baugniet also created theatre costumes and sets, designed furniture, posters and tapestries. A contemporary of Magritte and Delvaux, during a period in Paris, Baugniet discovered the abstract art of Kandinsky and Delaunay, but mostly it was there his fascination for Russian Constructivism was born.
Somewhat unrecognized during his lifetime, in 1927 Baugniet founded an interior design practice and continued to design furniture and decorative objects right up until the 1970s. Signed M.L BAUGNIET, 1929, and framed with a triple stepped acid-free mount and plain gold leaf frame and glazed.
Overall framed size: 21 x 25 inches (53 x 64 cm)
